First and foremost: SOCKS!
That’s right, even if your outfit doesn’t call for socks, you really need to bring socks with you to wear with the bowling shoes you’ll be renting. Thick, absorbent socks are best. If you forget to bring socks, head over to our pro shop to pick up a pair.
Bowling requires a range of movement, so make sure you wear something comfortable and easy to move in. Avoid super tight or restrictive clothing that could make it difficult to bend over, walk, or swing your arms. The bowling alley is a place to relax and hang out while enjoying some friendly competition, so don’t feel obligated to dress to the nines.
Don’t get caught
No, we’re not advocating sneaking around. Don’t get caught on your clothes or jewelry! Large or excessive rings and bracelets can get caught on your shirt when swinging your arm to take a shot, or even fly off down the lane! Remember, you should never walk on the lane – if you need assistance, let an employee know.
You should also avoid wearing any clothing that has a lot of bits and bobs you could snag while bowling. Avoid severely oversized clothing and anything with lots of zippers, loops, cords, or trailing pieces.
Now that you know how to dress for the bowling alley, it’s time to have some fun! Join us for open bowling or sign up for one of our Middleton bowling leagues.
